So I've started making Offset Headers:

I worked up a pretty lengthy post on it here: http://brettbeauregard.com/blog/2009/07/arduino-offset-header/

The short version:
  • One of the headers on the Arduino is misaligned. This in turn has made Arduino shields misaligned.
  • This header can be used to interface between "Arduino spacing" and standard spacing (2.54mm).
  • Initially this is just a good way to quickly make cheap shields.
  • Ultimately I'd like people to feel safe in making standard-spaced Arduinos and shields, knowing that if people need to they can still connect with legacy stuff.
  • Soon to be available at Adafruit.

Let me know what you think!



Nice, I look for to their avaliblity.



Sparkfun is carrying them now as well.  Their picture is much nicer than mine:  http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=9374


It's good to see them available just by themselves instead of bundled with something else.
